Daily Photo Tour - Making Progress Toward Tomorrow
Whenever I think of Tomorrowland, it brings forth inspiration, ingenuity, and ideas of building a better tomorrow. Have you ever thought of exactly what we are doing as a society? I'm not talking about going green, recycling bottles, or stopping polar ice caps from melting. I mean, those are all great. But, what happened to the idea of "dreaming and working and building a better way of life?" What are we doing as a society to make our lives better? Yeah, blame it on the economy. Blame it on Uncle Sam. Blame it on the alcohol (see what I did there), but when it comes down to it, it's how hard we work, and what we do with our money, time, and talents. I'm just saying, when was the last time we had a huge breakthrough in anything? I hear people complain all the time about Tomorrowland and how it needs to be updated and brought current so that it actually is a land of what tomorrow could hold. The sad reality is, I don't think we really know where we are going as a society, and I think we are unsure of what tomorrow holds. One thing is for certain though, it's only a matter of time until someone gets fed up and makes this thing called life move a little bit forward.
"Progress is people getting release from drudgery, gaining more time to enjoy themselves and live richer lives. As long as man dreams and works and builds, this progress will go on in your life and mine." -The Carousel of Progress ride soundtrack
